New KML Leadership Structure Approved

In response to the upcoming retirement of Superintendent David Bartelt, KML’s Executive Committee and the Board of Directors invested countless hours over a multi-month process collaborating with administrators, teachers, and staff members as they contemplated the best leadership model moving forward. This process also included studying a diverse sample of other high school leadership models and input from Grace in Action, a well-respected WELS consulting group.

At the regular General Board meeting on Monday, April 12, 2021, the delegates of the General Board reviewed, evaluated, and provided feedback to the Board of Directors on the proposed new KML leadership structure and then unanimously approved the proposal to establish a new leadership model which will become effective on July 1, 2021.

Below is a simplified version of the flow chart of roles, responsibilities, and accountability in the approved new KML leadership structure.

Please join us in praying to our gracious Lord that he would continue to bless our efforts in this important ministry. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to reach out to us.

In Christ’s Service,

Board Chairman John Pahmeier
